About Us
BJ, the Pet of the Day
Name: BJ
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Box Turtle
Home: Elyria, Ohio, USA
   BJ lives in our classroom at Northwood Jr. High. He stays in an aquarium most of the time, but he loves to walk around the room and get exercise. After he is tired, he hides behind things and rests. We take turns taking care of BJ. He needs food and fresh water every day. BJ's favorite foods are bananas, strawberries and he loves worms. When we garden in the spring and fall we look for worms for BJ to eat. We think BJ is special because he does not hide in his shell from us because he knows we won't hurt him. He loves to have his head rubbed.
